    Thatís interesting given the civic center is staffing the whole three weeks for full attendance.

    Got it.

    As you see, the close in tickets are scarce. I expect most will be sold out or near sell out. I know they arenít expecting many to go unsold over the entire run. Lots of people coming from other cities.

    oh considering its a 3 week tour its sold well for sure. the tour is so extensive however I think less people from other cities are traveling but some are. for us we can't really pull much from Tulsa since Hamilton leaves OKC and begins its run there. It just finished up in Kansas City and I believe already hit Dallas and hits Ft Worth early 2020. they really canvased this tour but wont be hurting for sales.

    If you have the chance, I highly recommend going to see Hamilton while it's here. I saw it and was very impressed. It lived up to the hype--very entertaining and worth every penny. Plenty of tickets are available and the Civic Center is a great venue.

    The Freede is soooo long overdue. I never understood why they ignored it during the major renovation. It's just nasty in there. And glad to see it will have its own entrance. If you're not familiar with where it is, it's difficult to find. I have to admit, the first time i saw a show there, i had absolutely no idea the place even existed before! But once i went inside...yuk. I mean talk about dust bunnies even. The size of soccer balls on the ceiling folks. And that color scheme is probably the original!

    It's really a chance for OKC to create a real art deco gem in that space. I hoe they dont go on the cheap on the actual theater and dont spend it all on the new entrance.

    I believe the only thing going forward at this time is the Freede Theater.

    There's work happening on the interior as well. Some adjustments to the main atrium and lobby going on

    I apologize, I forgot they were redoing the main lobby of the Civic Center.

    The renovation will change the look and functionality of the lobby:

    In the Thelma Gaylord lobby, the renovation plans call to remove the ticket booth, the glass walls and the bar, creating a more open space. The stairs near the theater, donned in red, are being removed as well to create more space.

    A new central bar, serving spirits and coffee, is being built closer to the theater’s exterior wall, though two other bars are being added to the north and south side on the first floor. The north bar will be housed in a glassed-off area for VIPs.

    The building’s main entrance will also have a new security system, first installed at Frontier City this summer. Evolv Express can screen 3,000 people an hour for weapons, helping to keep the line moving and allowing people to get to their seats in time.

    The men’s first floor restrooms are being renovated and more dressing rooms are being added in the back of the house area.

    A couple more renderings of the renovated lobby; it will be far more open than before:

    This is just a shot in the dark but those pictures scream "asbestos remediation required" to me.

    In that last photo, it looks like that ceiling covering has been removed.

    Asbestos removal is so common now, they just bring in a specialist to quickly bag it up and dispose of it properly.
